Sabrina/Riverdale Crossover Not Planned but New Spin-off Is

by Mark McCurley

Looks like Sabrina won’t be crossing over into Riverdale this fall as series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed at the Television Critics Association on Monday that there are no plans currently for a crossover between the CW show and its upcoming sister series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. However, he did confirm that another spin-off is in the pipeline but was coy with the details.

In the morning of the event, CW president Mark Pedowitz downplayed all rumors of a crossover for the two series and clarified no one from Riverdale would be making a cameo appearance on the Netflix drama.

Pedowitz confirmed Aguirre-Sacasa, who is exec producer of both series, is working on a possible spin-off of the latter.

“I’m waiting to hear what Roberto has in mind,” he said.

During the panel and with Riverdale’s parent cast Luke Perry, Mark Conseulos, Lochlyn Munro, Marisol Nichols, Mädchen Amick and Nathalie Boltt seated beside him, Aguirre-Sacasa declared another spin-off was in fact in the works at the CW. “We’re still early on in the process and it will be very different from Riverdale,” he said, while also mentioning the spin-off would be in “this development cycle.”

In Riverdale, KJ Apa stars as the main character Archie Andrews in the series along with Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, Ashleigh Murray as Josie McCoy, Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones and Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom. The series also stars Casey Cott, Skeet Ulrich and Vanessa Morgan.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will premiere on Netflix on October 26. Kiernan Shipka stars as Sabrina in the new series and is joined by cast members Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch and Bronson Pinchot.
